Recomendaciones de Manga Yaoi


A aquellos que les gusta el manga yaoi, esto es homoerotismo, y que sois mayores de edad, que esto es con alto contenido sexual y de violencia les recomiendo mis descubrimientos en este género. Ambos bastante diferentes.

Crimson Spell, Vol. 1

(Book #1 of Crimson Spell)

Upon wielding an ancient sword that has been passed down through his royal family for generations, Prince Vald is struck by a curse that turns him into a demon! In search of guidance, Vald appeals to the powerful sorcerer Halvi for help, and the two set out on a journey to break the curse. However, there is one thing the handsome sorcerer is keeping secret from the young prince—the raging demon that Vald turns into every night can only be calmed when Halvi satisfies his lust! And so begins their epic journey in search of clues to break the young prince’s curse.
Reads R to L (Japanese Style) for mature audiences.
Esto es alta fantasía / fantasia épica, hay un príncipe con una espada maldita que se convierte en demonio, un hechicero que le ayuda , con segundas intenciones, una búsqueda por una cura. Mucho sexo. Otros demonios, y magos, y ladrones y princesas, y dragones y animales de lo más raros.

El dibujo es precioso, hay humor y mucha acción.

Hay 5 volumenes publicados hasta ahora.


El otro recomendado es más actual, con una trama muy distinta, nos presenta un mundo criminal moderno, de los yakusa.

囀る鳥は羽ばたかない 1 (Saezuru Tori wa Habatakanai 1)

Twittering Birds Never Fly #1


Yashiro is the young leader of Shinseikai and the president of the Shinseikai Enterprise, but like so many powerful men, he leads a double life as a deviant and a masochist. Chikara Doumeki comes to work as a bodyguard for him and, although Yashiro had decided that he would never lay a hand on his own men, he finds there's something about Doumeki that he can't resist. Yashiro makes advances toward Doumeki, but Doumeki has mysterious reasons for denying. Yashiro, who abuses his power just to abuse himself, and Doumeki, who faithfully obeys his every command, begin the tumultuous affair of two men with songs in their hearts and no wings to fly.


Esto es mucho drama, angst, y cosas criminales, personajes muy disfuncionales y atraidos hacia otros hombres. Jefes y asesinos mafiosos japoneses, conspiraciones y dramas personales. 

Hay cuatro volumenes publicados.

Reseña: John Carter: The End (comic)

 +Digital copy gently provided by Netgalley in exchange for an honest review+

John Carter: The End

Writer: Brian Woods, Alex Cox

Art: Hayden Sherman

 Cover: Juan Doe

BLURB: Centuries have passed and time has taken its toll on Mars. Conflict burns across the landscape. A war of supremacy and genocide at the hands of a brutal despot has brought the planet to the edge of collapse. A search party has finally located an aged John Carter and Dejah Thoris, living in quiet seclusion on a desert moon, in perpetual mourning for their lost son. How could they be Mars' last hope?

My rating:  2.8 stars

John Carter and Dejah Thorin after centuries , appears to becoming to the ending of a cicle in Barsoom. The wear and tear of the couple is noticeable, either for the long years, or because of the harsh living conditions on Titan. When the Martians seek their help again, the truth seems to end up leading them to final separation.

The plot seems credible, although with that output a little deus-ex-machina so suitable of the genre of science fiction. Be prepared for some surprises.

This is the second part of the trilogy based upon the Disney's picture where four teen children of villains that live in exile in the Isle of Lost, have the opportunity of go to school at Aralon (where the good characters of the fairytales live). The original idea was stole some magical object to release their parents, but ...

Well, the manga style of the drawing does very little to help differentiate between the protagonists of the story, and for this it detracts from all the small eccentricities that make the flesh-and-blood version of this youthful fantasy with characters of children of villains an engaging story.

I'm sorry, but it's not what I expected.

Rocky Mountain K9 Unit Series:
Run to Ground (Book 1)
On the Chase (Book 2)

My rating: 2.8 running stars

My bookshelves: netgalley, w_police-detective, contemporary-fiction,  romance, insta-lust-or-luv, accion

I do not read the previous book, but the plot is understood without any problem.

Kaylee has her dream life in California, great job, nice home, good clothes, and maybe a dream boyfriend , but then her dream come crushing down with awful reality when she sees something horrible in a party and feel that is more safe to flee frightened for her life.

I really wanted to like this book, that is, a hot cop that works with dogs, and a girl who runs away who ends up working in a kennel? Pasapacá. But the story differs somewhat from that. Unlike other readers, I would have complained a great deal more -internally- in case I had to leave behind all that had been achieved with so much effort in a matter that was not my fault. (And in my case, I would have even regretted having helped those strangers, in fact. Although the latter really were lip service.) So, I like Grace. Yes, she is not a wall flower, and acts when it count.
